Caroline and Casey
How We Met
We met when I was in 8th grade and he was in 9th. As the years went on, we became really good friends and then eventually best friends, but when he finally gained up the courage to ask me out, I was nervous to cross that line because I didn’t want our friendship to be ruined if it didn’t work out. But he wasn’t giving up, so I decided to give it a chance and it was the best decision I could have made because now I get to marry my best friend.
How They Asked
We just got back from a vacation in Italy, where he surprised me with a trip to Paris at the end of the trip and he had made dinner reservations at the top of the Eiffel Tower. At the end of the dinner, he proposed to me which I wasn’t expecting at all because he just got home from a four month deployment overseas. This vacation was supposed to be a trip for us to enjoy him being home again. I’m so in love with this man and how much effort it took to pull this off. It was a memory that I will truly never forget and made me realize that I am living a real life fairytale because of him.
